Definitely Original!

I found the story fascinating, but not easy to read – I really had to stretch my imagination in order to go along with a community of sentient dinosaurs.

I had trouble thinking about how their bodies worked, how their furniture was shaped, how their buildings looked, what their clothes covered… but those difficulties aside, the story was great and I’m in for more instalments!

Unexpectedly bad

What disappointed you about Far-Seer?

I really like most of R.J Sawyer's work. This book is a teen lizard 'coming-of-age' story with the unlikely twist of the lizard developing a complete astrophysical model of his solar system from scratch. Confusing? - yes. Unbelievable? - Yes. Thought provoking? - nope.


Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Really have to admire the narrator's handling of the unpronounceable names and customs of the race of lizard people. Glad I didn't have to read it.
